Public toilets: Ashford Borough Council

Public toilets

Report it stamp. Grunge effect circular blue stamp with 'Report it!' in burnt orange across the middle and 'working together to make the borough a better place' in grey in a circle inside the stamp.We provide public toilets in key locations within the Ashford area. The toilet opening times vary according to the location and demand, all public conveniences are cleaned regularly. The frequency varies from site to site and depends upon the level of use. All public conveniences are cleaned at least once each day, but frequencies are modified to suit peaks of demand, such as during the holiday season.

We will remove obscene graffiti promptly and other graffiti as soon as possible. We also arrange for repairs to be carried out promptly once the extent of the damage has been notified. Vandalism is a major concern in public toilets which results in unplanned closures and expenditure.
